An incomplete copper-alloy post-medieval double-loop rectangular buckle frame, missing its pin. Whitehead (1996, 75) suggests a date of 1570-1700.

The object measures 33.8mm in length, 25.9mm wide, 2.9mm in max.thickness and weighs 5.71g. The internal measurements of the loops are c.12x20mm. There is a transverse notch for the pin on one outside edge, otherwise there is no discernible decoration on either side.
